--The trial of George Rigley
, indicted for grand larceny, was concluded before Judge Lyons
The testimony was by no means sufficient to fix the guilt upon Rigley, who seems to have borne a good character in the State of Mississippi
The jury therefore rendered a verdict of ‘"not guilty,"’ and the prisoner was discharged.
, an unfortunate European
, indicted for stabbing Augustus Miller
, was tried and convicted, the jury ascertaining the term of his imprisonment in the penitentiary at five years. The wound inflicted upon Miller
was not fatal, and it is quite probable that Zahn
's senses were beclouded by drink when be committed the deed.
R. D. Ward
, counsel for the prisoner.
, who stole a lot of old clothes from Johanna Sexton
, was indicted for felony; but the jury on Saturday determined that the value of the stolen property was less than $20, and she was convicted of misdemeanor only.
Sentenced to six months imprisonment in the city jail.
